Christmas Holiday Wishes
Happy Holidays everyone! It’s my favorite time of the year—the Christmas lights and decorations are up all around the City and you can feel the holiday spirit! I just love the holiday season and all of the holiday activities the City of St. Peters has to offer. We’ll host our 32nd annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at City Hall on Friday, Dec. 3, beginning at 6:30 p.m. After we light the tree with Santa, join us inside for a Holiday Hop concert by Butch Wax & The Hollywoods. It’s a great way to get the holiday season rockin’ … and it’s all FREE!
On Dec. 11, we have two great events planned. The Rec-Plex will host Breakfast with Santa from 9-11 a.m. That afternoon, the St. Charles County Symphony Orchestra will put on a Holiday Concert from 2-4 p.m. at the Cultural Arts Centre. On the following weekend, the Rec-Plex North Rink will be filled with wonderful holiday skating exhibitions during the Winter Wonderland on Ice Show. Performances are planned for Friday, Dec. 17, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 18, at 5 p.m. The Cultural Arts Centre will also host a Holiday Dance Party on Friday, Dec. 17, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. You won’t want to miss all these fun holiday activities so close to home, so check for more details on www.stpetersmo.net.
When you’re walking down the street or in the malls and pass a serviceman or woman, please say “Hi” and shake their hand and say “Thank You” for all you have done. Please remember your veterans and thank them for their service. If it were not for them, we would not have the freedoms we have today. This means a lot to them knowing they are remembered, and a lot of our service members wish they were home with their families. You can also stop by the USO at Lambert Field. Any donation you can give to the USO will mean a world to them when they stop in for a warm meal or catch a few hours sleep. An easy way that you can donate to the USO through our "Pennies for Patriots” program. Just drop off saved-up aluminum cans at Recycle City in the Blue container under the American flag, at the Mayor Tom Brown Senior Center in the two blue containers inside, or at the west side of City Hall in the brown container. on the west side of City Hall in the Brown Dumpster or at Recycle City in the big Blue Dumpster.
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope you enjoy all the holiday festivities and quality time with your loved ones.

PREVIOUS MESSAGE FROM ALDERMAN REITMEYER:
Special Events Return to St. Peters!
There’s nothing I enjoy more than the holiday season. As Alderman, nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing the families I proudly serve enjoying themselves during the holdiays. It fills my heart with so much joy. Last year was a difficult time with so many cancellations … but with our holiday events coming back this year, I look forward to catching up on all the fun and excitement with everyone!
On Thursday, Nov. 11, the Veterans Memorial Commission will host a Veterans Day Ceremony at 9:30 a.m., at our beautiful Veterans Memorial Site in front of City Hall. This is an important event where we honor the service of all the men and women who preserve the freedoms we enjoy in America every day. Please tell all veterans and residents that you know to come join us!
Then, after enjoying Thanksgiving with our families, it’s time for a St. Peters holiday staple: our annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony returns on Friday, Dec. 3! This will be our 32nd annual ceremony where we can all get together and light the beautiful Christmas tree outside City Hall. I can’t wait to see everyone getting into the holiday spirit again, and I hope to see you there!
Don’t worry if you miss Santa at the Tree Lighting. He’ll be making another stop at St. Peters to have breakfast with us at the Rec-Plex! You can stop by Saturday, Dec. 11, from 9-11 a.m. to say hi and enjoy a delicious meal. It’s a magical way to start off a December morning … (and a good opportunity to sneak some gift requests to Santa too!)
This is the Holiday Season and when you see a serviceman or woman in uniform, please shake their hand and say “Thank you.” It’s with thanks to brave people like them that we can enjoy these times with our families.
If you want to do more for our troops, you can contribute to our “Pennies for Patriots” program. Just drop off any saved-up aluminum cans at Recycle City in the Blue container under the American flag, at the Mayor Tom Brown Senior Center in the two blue containers inside, or at the west side of City Hall in the brown container.
All money collected goes to the USO at Lambert field, which is a “home away from home” and a place to rest for many servicemen and women coming back from places all over the world.
I want to wish everyone to have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and please have a Safe Holiday Season!
